Waivers

Tuition Waivers

Several kinds of tuition waivers are available to Bunker Hill Community College students. These waivers include, but are not limited to, National Guard, veterans, senior citizens, Native Americans, state employees and wards of the state. In order to receive a tuition discount, students must present the waiver at the time of registration. If students present the waiver after registration, the College will make no adjustment. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts does not fund all courses; therefore, the use of certain waivers for those unfunded courses will be restricted. Students eligible for waivers should obtain clarification from the Admissions and Registration Desk before making course selections.
